A modern, sustainable infill home in the heart of Linden Hills, this home is Green Star certified and features a 4.9 kw solar array on the roof top. It serves as a model for modern sustainable home design and building practices.
This house does not maximize the allowed building width, instead providing a broad 'solar' yard to the south. Southern exposure is maximized for the solar array and passive solar strategies for the home. The result is a narrow street profile and a well-sited home that does not crowd neighboring structures. Landscaping was also designed toward sustainability, featuring low-mow fescue in lieu of traditional turf.
